I won't lie, I was hesitant to even write on this topic. I couldn't resist. Could it be true? Could eating your boogers boost your immune system?
Believe it, or not, but some people eat their boogers. It's gross, but I have witnessed grown men eating them in the safety of their cars while sitting at a traffic light. Sir, I saw you. You know who you are.
The New York Times wrote an article that included interviews with experts who said the world is becoming too sterile thanks to things like antibacterial soap. They say it's weakening our immune system.
They also spoke to a Doctor in Denver named Meg Lemon who said it might be a good idea to pick your nose more, and then EAT IT! She didn't give a specific reason why it helps, but she also included that if you drop your food on the floor, pick it up and eat it too.
I won't lie... I give the good old "5 second rule" to any food that hits my floor.
BUT EAT YOUR OWN BOOGERS??? WHAT??
If you eat your own boogers, you have a Doctor out there telling you it's ok. You do you BOO.
